Singapore REITs: - Share prices gained momentum following jobs data miss

  • We note that the share prices of S-REITs have gained traction following the release of the U.S.
  • non-farm payrolls data last Friday which missed the street’s expectations. The increase of 151k for the month of Aug came in below the Bloomberg consensus median forecast of 180k.
  • The FTSE ST REIT Index has appreciated 1.9% in two trading sessions since the report
  • In our view, the disappointing jobs data may have given the market impetus to believe that there is a lower likelihood of a rate hike in Sep. 
  • In addition, the U.S. ISM Non-manufacturing Index for the month of Aug came in at 51.4, falling short of expectations and also the lowest level since Feb 2010. 
  • The probability of a Sep rate hike happening currently stands at 24.0%, based on the fed funds futures rate, down 12 ppt before the release of the payrolls figure. As for the Dec FOMC meeting, the probability of a rate hike comes in at 51.8%. 
  • We maintain our OVERWEIGHT rating on the S-REITs sector. 
  • Our preferred picks are Frasers Centrepoint Trust [BUY; FV: S$2.32], Keppel DC REIT [BUY; FV: S$1.30], Ascendas REIT [BUY; FV: S$2.66], SPH REIT [BUY; FV: S$1.05] and Mapletree Greater China Commercial Trust [BUY; FV: S$1.18].
